October Meeting Notice

“It is with a heavy heart that I take up my pen to write these last words…”                  
-- Doctor John Watson in “The Final Problem.”      

We hope your heart will be lighter than the good doctor’s so that you will join us for an afternoon of comestibles and conviviality at the fall meeting of The Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 12:30 p.m.
Pasquale’s Restaurant
31555 Woodward, Royal Oak, MI                                              
Restaurant phone: (248) 549-4002
Our assigned story is “The Final Problem,” which combines The Master (Sherlock Holmes), his dastardly arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty and a certain deadly waterfall in Switzerland.

Our presentation, by member Al Calderini, will be “Memorable Moriartys of the Media,” a comprehensive look at those who have so famously played the arch-villain on stage and screen.

We’ll also have the usual toasts, plus prizes and more so we hope to see you on October 5, 2014.
NOTE: Please make checks payable to: Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit.

To join us, please mail your check for $25 per person by FRIDAY, SEPT. 26th to:

c/o Edward F. Stein

Southfield, MI  48033

Our buffet includes veal parmigiana or roast chicken with meat & marinara sauces. A garden salad, hot garlic sticks, bread, beverages will be provided – as will cannolis for dessert.  As always, there will be a cash bar.

“Come at once if convenient … if inconvenient, come all the same.”
